. it is a different tlesh hold than what the obama administration has laid out when you look carefully at what the president said at the general assembly, the most recent remarks on iran's nuclear program, he said the united states will not allow iran to have a nuclear bomb. i am paraphrasing to a certain degree. the word capability was not there. you did hear it from the israeli prime minister and today you're hearing it once again from mitt romney. mitt romney has been vague. he has gone back and forth on the issue of capability and sometimes he says it and sometimes he doesn't. today he is very cat goral in saying in a romney administration iran would not be able to have that capability of building a nuclear bomb which is significantly different than the threshold laid out by the president. >> and let's talk about syria which has been somewhat of a thorn in the side of this current sitting american president, and mr. romney, governor romney's view of syria, there was something in these prepared remarks that we excerpted that stood out to me and i want to get your take on it. he said or he w
. he points to the obama administration ideology being at fault both before the attack and afterwards. that's important to understand. before the attack we clearly didn't suspect it was coming. that's due to an intelligence failure in the sense we looked for information and couldn't get it or if the ideological reason applied they didn't think we needed to ask for the information. al qaeda has been defeated, the war on terror is over, libya is a great success, what could go wrong. obviously it did go wrong. but if the administration from the top down isn't processing reality, this is the kind of tragedy you. bill: you are pinpointing the ideology. so this was their mental thinking about the condition of the arab world or that region or libya specifically do you think? >> i think very broadly. it goes to president obama's view of america's place in the world. it's a corollary to what he thinks america' domestic structure looks like. it made him in the case of libya and kay row and elsewhere -- libya and cairo and elsewhere in the region to see the islamists' rise. it was a brother and
policy wise? >> the obama administration has never had a foreign policy. bill, he's only had this assortment of confused, naive initiatives poisoned by ideology, deformed by politic, driven by politics, and the only thing these initiatives in the foreign affairs realm have had in common has been their failure. if you look from benghazi to beijing, in this afro-asian realm of crisis, there is not one troubled country, not one, not russia, not china, certainly not iran, afghanistan, pakistan, certainly not israel, not one country in which relations are healthier or more constructive than under george w. bush, and that was a pretty low standard. >> bill: what do you say, colonel hunt? >> i think the specificity of the policy when you look at libya in which we wanted a lower american profile with the weakest profile we've had security since 1979 first ambassador we had killed failed. in afghanistan issues we have people training, killing us. that is not -- and the surge was supposed to crush the taliban. the commander on the ground reports says the taliban is back. he talked abou
this to demonstrate the obama administration's failure when it comes to believe. the state department will buy back and say they did everything they could, but some of the violence can be unpredictable. >> one way the u.s. is trying to combat terrorism is through the use of drones -- unmanned aircraft. it has been a dramatic increase in drawn strikes inside pakistan by the afghan border. the u.s. says it is targeting militants. human rights groups say innocent civilians have died. he says the attacks are an illegal violation of pakistan's 70 -- sovereignty. >> in the sky overhead, day and night. in pakistan's tribal belt, there's no escape from cia drones and no knowing where they will strike. this was one of america's big victories -- a strike in june that killed al qaeda's second in command. we met some of those on the receiving end who beg to differ. between them, they have lost 12 relatives -- all civilians, they insist. >> when i saw their bodies in pieces, my heart wanted revenge. it still does. the remote control killers are president obama's weapon of choice, not only in pakistan. criticall
? >> he was referring to what he called the weak reaction from the obama administration to the uprising, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a spe

at the end of the month. the obama administration is reportedly considering whether to begin unilateral military strikes on alleged al qaeda targets in north africa. "the washington post" reports concerns about al qaeda gains in mali, as well as weapons gained from libya. the u.s. has launched secret intelligence operations, including the use of civilian aircraft to conduct surveillance over the sahara desert. new figures show september was iraq's's the deadliest month in more than two years. sure when he would be detained. >> in regard to our reaction to the verdict today by enforcing the verdict, we were expecting that. we know that we are still targeted for our role in the pro-democracy movement. they expected the same, that there would be this verdict. they believe also that they are innocent and did not do any ms. doing, wrongdoing. >> that was ali al-ekry speaking hours before his arrest. york attorney general eric schneiderman has filed a lawsuit against jp morgan chase for alleged fraud in mortgage-backed securities issued by bear stearns. he says investors were defrauded by mor
, the republican nominee criticize the obama administration for allowing chavez to expand his influence in the region. >> and our neighbors want to resist the failed ideology of hugo chÁvez and the castro brothers and deepen ties with the united states on trade and energy and security, but in all these places, just as in the middle east, the question is asked -- where does america stand? >> that was mitt romney. danny glover, your response? >> poverty in the area is 40%, near 40% over the last 13 years. in venezuela, and all of the region. part of it is associated with the integration. once you get out into the fields, you begin to talk with people who have worked their way and not with cash handouts, but worked their way out of poverty. that is the real story of achievement, not only in venezuela, the other places as well. >> finally, danny, you have spent time with president chavez. were you with him when he voted? how is his health? he has been treated -- >> i saw someone, and i have not seen pictures of president chÁvez over this ordeal in terms of his health and dealing with his
the obama administration. so, what could a romney presidency do differently than what we have witnessed? >> well, you know, there's a good argument that much of this will be political rhetoric. it clearly no one thinks that employing convention power against iranian nuclear facilities is a way to move forward. nobody want it is israelis to attack with conventional military power at this time. and by the way, i think the iranians are going nuclear regardless of the stranglehold on them. governor romney's in a tenuous position. he won't want to provide a clear alternative. the american people won't vote for a war. >> all right. so one thing i think a lot of people will remember if they've seen the now infamous secret tape. 47% remark in florida where mitt romney did discuss the current situation in the middle east and the wording he used in reference to that saying, we just have to live with certain things that are going on there. the cycle of violence that we have been seeing. now calling for beginning anew. kind of an etch-a-sketch moment for the foreign policy initiative, the leadershi
the obama administration has stepped up drone astacks. u.s. officials say the aerial strikes are an effective strategy and have killed hundreds of militants that fueled the insurgency across the border in afghanistan. washington also insists civilian casualties are rare. members of code pink say they held fundraisers in the u.s. to pay their way over here and got close to pakistan's tribal region, about an hour away. this is a place many u.s. government and military officials never dare step in. pakistani authorities said they had to stop them for their own safety. even so, code pink not done making nose against the u.s. drones and planning on more protests this week in pakistan. reza saya, cnn, islam bad. >>> the spacex rocket blasted off from cape canaveral last night launching the first commercial flight to the international space station. the unmanned capsule is on its way after separating from the rocket. dragon is carrying 1,000 pounds of cargo and this is the first of a dozen nasa contracted flights to resupply the space station. talk about launching a big one, new orl
that is abandoned by the obama administration and it is important to support our allies like israel and support the opposition in syria and obviously touch on the libyan issue with regard to the benghazi attack and the death of four americans including the death of ambassador stevens and our role in the middle east, not being an observer but an active participant . making foreign policy work for the united states. >> steve: you will see the next debate on foreign policy. since the debate debacle for the president they blamed everybody. blaming mitt romney for being a liar . blamed jimm lehrer and even the guy who prepared the president. john kerry. he wants to be secretary of state and so he didn't get in the president's face. there is an item apparently the obama staff knew 10 minutes before it was all over on wednesday night that it was a debacle and convened a conference call and decided to go after romney and hit on big bird and all new ads to have a come back. >> gretchen: apparently the adpeople stayed up all might to have an adto go right away. when president obama was in hollywood . he
layoffs, if those pentagon cuts could take effect. the obama administration says don't send out the notices right before election day, and if you, government contractor gets sued we'll pay your legal bills. i asked an expert if that is legal. >> the administration has said that you don't have to send out these notices, because we haven't given you the specific information as to what plans, what projects will be cut. the o & b was supposed to produce that information. have you a rather bizarre game of chicken, on this occasion, however it will be thousands of workers that go over the cliff. but ultimately it comes down to the administration saying we think we going to win. >> reporter: if congress and the white house cannot workout a deal to offset those cuts after election day hundreds of thousands of workers will be the losers, jon. jenna: we have thisee hrebs coming up as you mentioned. some republicans are outraged by the move about how this is all playing out. what are they saying. >> senator john mccain says he'll do everything in his power to make sure the administration c
correspondent is calling out the obama administration for lying to american people. it's big and important. laura logan in her own words. "i can't stand that there is a major lie propagated. there is a narrative coming out of washington for the last two years. poor, moderate, gentleer, kinder taliban. it's just nonsense. president obama turns blind eye to reality that the bad guys that want to kill our children are out there lur lurking. while obama takes another victory lap last night. >> today, al-qaeda is on appeal and bin laden is no more. >> eric: let's start with laura logan. big news. big journalist. if anyone should know where al-qaeda is, and in the sate of al-qaeda would be her. >> andrea: laura logan was assaulted in egypt. amazing she has the courage to go back and report. if anyone knows her stuff about the region, she does. for her to call out the president on not just -- she is not just saying he is taking a victory lap. she is accusing the administration of lying. we have seen them not just publicly announce withdrawal from iraq as naive, but he is spiking the football. we
be a difference with the bush administration. now, barack obama had said that all we're doing in afghanistan is air-raiding villages and killing civilians. and such a reckless, reckless comment and untrue comment, again, hurts our cause. that's not what we're doing there. we're fighting terrorists, and we're securing democracy, and we're building schools for children there so that there is opportunity in that country, also. there will be a big difference there, and we will win in -- in afghanistan, also. >> senator, you may talk about nuclear use, if you'd like, and also about afghanistan. >> i'll talk about both. with afghanistan, facts matter, gwen. the fact is that our commanding general in afghanistan said today that a surge -- the surge principles used in iraq will not -- well, let me say this again now -- our commanding general in afghanistan said the surge principle in iraq will not work in afghanistan, not joe biden, our commanding general in afghanistan. he said we need more troops. we need government-building. we need to spend more money on the infrastructure in afghanistan. look,
.s. catholic of bishops to the obama administration rules and the affordable health care act for contraceptive coverage in such cases. parenthetically, and this is the relevant in the room, both catholics disagree with the school teaching on contraception. >> i am one of those catholics. [laughter] in this case the institution i believe still has religious freedom, but other parties are involved and they have their freedoms, too, their religious freedom, in addition these catholic institutions receive government funding for their operations. so, you have here attention of these different conflicting rights going on here. the rules proposed by the obama administration first say that the church institutions had to provide contraceptive health care insurance for their and please. not only the u.s. catholic bishops, but many other catholics and many other proponents and religious liberty oppose the obama administration and regulation they then propose a compromise that such employees would be covered for contraception but the institution wouldn't have to pay for it. they call that a brilliant solu

the united states and iran is better now than it was at the beginning of the obama administration in 2000-- 2008/2009? >> i have said i don't want to talk about something that would affect-- that would affect the u.s. elections. but i can state my own desires. i think, i think that the current situation between iran and the u.s. is to both parties disadvantage. there is certainly much room for improvement. why should the u.s. government be in conflict with us i haven't really been able to understand this so far. and i'm a political person. has the united states government have any gains, i'm not saying we have had any gains. no, we certainly didn't have any gains. why should we be in conflict with each other this is a serious question. >> rose: it's a very serious question. >> after all the american politicians should sit down and answer this question. why should we disagree with one another. >> rose: and i will ask them but what about your side? what can you do, what are you prepared to do, what changes have you made in terms of your attitude about the united states. your willingness to
the obama administration politicized the intelligence in the immediate aftermath of the attack to fit a convenient storyline that it was spontaneous and not premeditated terrorism. >> i argue the administration made some serious mistakes when they highlighted the video, escalated its credibility to the presidential level and then took it on tv in pakistan with u.s. taxpayer dollars. >> reporter: rogers, who told fox one day after the attack that it was, indeed, terrorism, saying the statement from the director of national intelligence on friday appeared to be an effort to obscure the facts. >> part of the problem is this circling of the wagons that is really concerning about this. again, americans need to understand the truth, and the facts are what the facts are. and the intelligence is what the intelligence is. >> reporter: fox news asked an administration official why it chose ambassador rice to discuss the sensitive intelligence details on five sunday talk shows over current career intelligence officials including adviser john brennan, national security adviser donilon, james clap
made by obama administration. it was a judge who reversed the position who changed the future of wolf recovery. it changed the goal posts. what we need ultimately need we needed an endangered reform act. it's not working for the betterment of the endangered species and there's nobody in this room, nobody in montana that wanted to endangered species. that want species to disappear from the face of the earth. the point is we need certainty. we need to work together to delist it. turn management back over to the state. the solution and compromise came up was stopgap. it should be delisted. it still allows the u.s. fish and wildlife service to have an influence. the management should be sent back to the state as we have proposed in my legislation. >> the problem is, legislation didn't make it out of committee. still setting there. we got a bill we can get bipartisan support for and get passed. it was done after talking with sportsmen and livestock producers and conservationist across the board. it was the right thing to do for the wolves. it was the right thing to do for montana. we got i
the obama administration over their approach to syria. he was clear he would be sure that syrian rebels got the weapons they need, the heavy weaponry they so desperately need to take on the gun ships an tanks causing civilian casualties. he portrayed the struggle as more about checking iran's influence in that region, but he also pointed out one of the major contradictions the white house is currently facing, the violence extremists are flowing in, but the need to vet the kind of assistance it would go to. >> most libyans have not been following the presidential campaign. the attention has been on the country's own political situation. on sunday, the national assembly voted out the prime minister it had selected less than a month ago go. libya is now facing a political vacuum at a time of serious threats an instability. but one line from mitt romney's speech that would stand out to libyans, he said he would vigorously pursue those responsible for the september 11th attackn the u.s. consulate in benghazi. libyan officials here have praised the obama's administration response to the attack an
praised the obama's administration response to the attack and have you wowed to work together with the united states to bring the perpetrators to justice and to confront the rising islamic extremist threats in the eastern part of the country. but officials also at the same time have said that this is a very thin line. if the united states were to take any action that would infringe on libya's national sovereignty, that could be damaging to relations between both countries and cause internal turmoil. >> of course lots of questions for mitt romney about that foreign policy plan, the new polls, the debate performance, and today our wolf blitzer has a live interview with mitt roy in that at 6:00 p.m. eastern only on cnn. and thursday it's the vice presidential debate. live coverage starts at 7:00 p.m. eastern, 4:00 pacific. >>> his nickname is fearless felix. he's getting ready to jump from the edge of space. 23 miles above the globe to be exact. felix baumgartner is getting ready to plummet to the earth to break a skydiving record. he'll leap from a specially built balloon and ca
administration stories shifted in all of that and maybe if you don't already like obama, maybe that will help inform your choice of whether to vote for him, but not it seems lately because it's given you the information or the tools to think about what ought to happen in libya or what our policy and let the ought to be to really come to praise and foreign policy coverage as character coverage. i think those categories in a way get confused. you have separated them out, but it's -- or we learned about the world when we read that article or are we learning about whether mitt romney cares about the little guy or about whether obama is brave? i think it is a tricky question because you might indeed get the information that you feel you need to know to vote for this person or that person. but there's also the other little issue about learning about the articles are about more about the actual problems in the world beyond the election might be coming and i don't think that the character thing is negligible. it is important if somebody cares about the little guy. that is crucial about how they see t
administration. now, barack obama had said that all we're doing in afghanistan is air-raiding villages and killing civilians. and such a reckless, reckless comment and untrue comment, again, hurts our cause. that's not what we're doing there. we're fighting terrorists, and we're securing democracy, and we're building schools for children there so that there is opportunity in that country, also. there will be a big difference there, and we will win in -- in afghanistan, also. >> senator, you may talk about nuclear use, if you'd like, and also about afghanistan. >> i'll talk about both. with afghanistan, facts matter, gwen. the fact is that our commanding general in afghanistan said today that a surge -- the surge principles used in iraq will not -- well, let me say this again now -- our commanding general in afghanistan said the surge principle in iraq will not work in afghanistan, not joe biden, our commanding general in afghanistan. he said we need more troops. we need government-building. we need to spend more money on the infrastructure in afghanistan. look, we have spent more money
because this is a good thing for the obama administration. jack welch bei one of those. >> what i would say to those that say that we're cooking the books, first of all, it insults the integrity of the labor department, but secondly, it also means that they're not looking closely enough at the numbers, and typically what happens is that analysts put too much emphasis on the jobs report number. that number by virtue of the way it's collected from some 130,000 establishments and it's done through some by fax machine and others, that number is always going to be very variable. it's much like the adp number that we get earlier than even that number, so it's adjusted up and down every month, and so some months it will be down and adjusted upward, and other months it will be up and adjusted downward. >> it's a balance. >> yes. that's going to happen. but what's interesting is that -- >> tell us real quick what's interesting. >> last month it was adjusted upward, and we would expect it to happen this month. >> it's good news all around. thank you, danny. >> here's what we're working on for thi
opinion for a somewhat stronger american stance vis-a-vis the syrian conflict than the obama administration has thus far adopted. governor romney's speech today is almost certain to raise this point, whether it will raise it in a way that captures the public imagination and strikes them as sensible remains to be seen, but i would say that this survey and governor rom ty's speech -- romney's speech plus developments on the ground may be the entering wedge for what i personally regard as an overdue public debate about what the united states ought to be doing vis-a-vis the syrian conflict. >> bill, thank you so much. um, let me now turn to hisham, and bill talked about the apparent polarization of u.s. public opinion on foreign policy issues. perhaps not surprising four weeks out from a campaign in which foreign policy has suddenly and surprisingly begun to play a significant role in both the campaigns. but what we see in the arab world is with the emergence of more democratic politics, polarization as well. around a number of issues that relate to the relationship, the interact
today, mr. romney wanted president obama saying the administration has neglected farmers and the agriculture industry and he neglected rural vote increase the heartland. listen. >> there are big differences between the president and me. he has no plan for rural america, no plan for agriculture. no plan for getting people back to work and i do. you know i spoke about it all over the country. i'm going to make sure i help the american farmer and i help the economy and get america work again. >> to that end today, mr. romney again said that he would eliminate the estate tax, the so-called death tax and went further as he has on occasion during this campaign to say that he would eliminate capital gains and interest in dividends taxes on the middle class. all in an attempt to spur the economy. shep. >> shep: carl, what's the thinking on governor romney's bounce in the polls since that first big debate? >> they are very pumped here. the romney campaign is quite excited. they say there is more to come. they're building and talking about their ground game, grassroots, 4 million p
at -- predicate for a stronger american stance regarding the syrian conflict than the obama of administration has adopted. governor romney's speech today is almost certain to raise this point. whether it will raise it in a way that captures public and managing agent and strikes them as sensible remains to be seen, but i would say that this survey and governor romney's speech, plus, the elements of the ground, they be entering what i would personally regard as an overdue public debate about what the united states ought to be doing regarding the syrian conflict. >> thank you so much. let me turn to hisham, and bill talked about the polarization of american public opinion on for some -- on foreign policy. not surprising where foreign policy has begun to play a significant role in both the campaigns, but what we see in the arab world is with the emergence of more democratic politics, polarization as well. around a number of issues that relate to the relationship, interaction between these arab states in transition and united states and the west more broadly. the poor results that americans seem to un
? it tells you this is a political move that president obama does not look weak on terror. men and women are dying. >> eric: greg? >> greg: i can't tell if this is an administration or five women who can't decide where to brunch. nobody is communicating. i feel bad for generals. if the generals complained about birth control obama would call them. or maybe make sandra fluke a general and better lines of communication. this is what happens when you spend more time with joy behar than intel briefings. >> eric: bob, simultaneously over the weekend, sunday, the death toll, casualty count went over 2,000 in afghanistan. president obama on the stump saying al-qaeda is dead. his own general, guy leading troops in afghanistan saying al-qaeda is not dead. they are back in force. >> eric: initial al-qaeda responsible for 9 are dead. keep in mind every terrorist group in mideast and north africa take the name of al-qaeda because it's well-known name and something they raise money from saudis with. there is a more fundamental question. when is enough is enough? time to get out of the country. if rus
that administration, i call it administration, but there are some more decisions. and decision to eliminate osama bin laden, i think it was the leadership inaction for president obama to decide to kill osama bin laden. he did the right thing bordering the troops to do it. but 24 hours later there was one leader that condemned the u.s. for killing one of the greatest leaders. do you know who was that leader? which condemned you, the americans? it was the leader of the hamas organization in gaza. the only one who say i am condemning the u.s. for killing a great hero of the arab nation. and on the other hand, why send the troops to kill osama bin laden and the american administration is pressuring israel to sit down and negotiate, but with who? with the same people who praised osama bin laden? with the same people who teach and insight against jews everyday? that is what i think that if we need to get to a point where we have to reach a decision, we cannot allow the palestinian state. or so, i don't know how many of have been to israel but to get from there to hear it is almost crossing israel from east
house. let's just project forward and let's just say theoretically that president obama wins re-election. forecast the next six months after that from what you know of this administration and what might happen. >> well -- >> republican leadership that you're familiar with. >> obviously, you don't know, but he is tuned into his own ambivalences. and in the reporting on this, it's very clear he realizes we face a problem that is not going to go away, that he's got to address. and there are documents that are floating around that i got and notes of meetings, and you see, for instance, on medicare. he's now campaigning on we're not going to cut medicare. and there are documents where last year he was saying oh, yeah, we have to cut it $250 billion over ten years. >> wait. so you've got a document where barack obama is saying we've got to cut medicare $250 billion, which i think is responsible. but his campaign team is going out there every day saying watch out. we're not going to cut medicare, but mitt romney is. >> yeah. i mean, it's not just his campaign team. it's the president a
